Humana Cares Adds 140 Jobs In St. Petersburg, Managers Wanted

As the health care industry continues to lead the nation's economic rebound, Humana Cares is adding 140 jobs at its St. Petersburg facility.

The jobs will be added between now and July, according to Mitch Lubitz of Humana's corporate communications office.

Positions to be staffed include health care managers, community health educators, field care managers and health coaches. The increase will bring the number of employees working at Humana Cares' national operations and service center in Carillon Business Park office, which opened in February 2009, to about 500.

"Humana Cares is quickly becoming one of the fastest-growing health care employers in the Tampa Bay area, doubling its St. Petersburg workforce in the past year," he says.

Humana Cares provides telephonic health care management and support to chronically ill Humana members nationwide and in-person services to members in 24 states. Its health professionals work with patients suffering from medical conditions such as diabetes, congestive heart failure, cancer and Alzheimer's. Services provided include health care education and support, medication education, physician care coordination and end of life planning as well as depression screening.

Lubitz says Humana Cares uses a holistic approach requiring health care professionals who deliver services to possess "seasoned communication skills, including verbal, interpersonal, written and negotiation. "

Nursing experience and the ability to collaborate and coordinate patient care with multiple health care disciplines are also important attributes the company will be looking for in applicants.
